Graduate Research Fellowship Program


Wednesday, February 25, 2015


The NC Space Grant Graduate Research Fellowship Program provides add-on support for graduate students to supplement and enhance basic research support. The objective of this research fellowship opportunity is to encourage talented individuals to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields that support NASA’s mission. Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a program of study in STEM and have a specific faculty-mentored research project that has NASA or aerospace relevance.

The Graduate Research Fellowship Program requires that students participate in an active, identified research activity in STEM that has aerospace and NASA applications. The research must be supervised by a faculty mentor and may be conducted on the home campus or at an industrial or government facility. The research activity should be continuous and may be conducted anytime during the academic year, summer (defined as a minimum of 10 weeks) or both.

Awards are made annually and are renewable for one year for students making satisfactory academic and research progress. This is a competitive fellowship program supported by NASA and the State of North Carolina. Awards are based on merit recognizing high academic achievement and promise
